'Ships find transformative nodes, buried in proscribed space. Someone must go in to destroy or salvage what they can of these evolving ships. On this mission, not all is as it seems.
'Tom Dullemond brings us all the dangers of a mission of salvage with the additional dangers of a ship cannibalising itself and its crew. Helping another organism to achieve its ends is symbiosis; but sometimes this seemingly commensal relationship can be coopted.'
